      Hans I have the same lower but when I use it it wants to pull far to the left as I retrieve
    5. It’s been all over the place but lately since the water has been so warm it’s been between 12-19 feet regularly and more with lures than grubs and tubes. This spring/ ...more summer they were way closer to shore and hitting grubs for me more than lures.
